Ever wanted to know how to do an American accent?

I’m an American dialect specialist & I want you to sound brilliant.

What if we could make your accent work as strong as your comedic timing? As strong as your movement work? As strong as your acting technique?

The General American Intensive

 
5 x 60-minute Zoom sessions over the course of 5 weeks + in-between email and WhatsApp connectivity

 

This 6-week intensive takes you through the arc of the General American accent beginning with the basic rules and culminating with you using the accent on an array of texts and in free speech. The intensive is bespoke to your needs but encompasses 3 major areas:

MOUTH: Speech exercises to develop your oral posture in the accent
MUSIC: Ear training to master the rhythm, melody, stress & intonation patterns
SOUNDS: Mastering the major sound changes of the General American accent 

The General American Intensive also includes:

  • A focus on finding the General American accent right for YOU and YOUR CASTING & VOCAL TYPE
  • In between connectivity through WhatsApp to receive practice feedback in voice memos
  • Practice texts picked for you that complement the work we are doing in the sessions

As The Intensive involves highly individualized attention, places are strictly limited.

£450, inclusive of VAT. Payment plans available.

Individual 1:1 Sessions

 
1 x 60-minute Zoom session

 

1 hour stands between you and all the answers.

I offer a limited amount of individual 1:1 sessions. Although these are usually for clients prepping for an audition or self-tape, professional actors can book a 1:1 for General American coaching to solidify the accent in advance. The 1:1 is run as if you do have an upcoming audition in order to give you industry-standard preparation.

Together we select a text & you have the ability to sit with the text in advance of the 1:1.  During the 1:1 we work to bring the accent and your voice onto the text. You receive coaching and feedback bespoke to you. Most importantly, there is a focus on bridging the accent into performance for a fully realized, authentic sound.

These sessions can be recorded and sent to you at the end of the hour.

£100, inclusive of VAT.

American Accent Bootcamp

 
Next Session on Friday, 11 December @ 1PM GMT Once a month small group drop-in Zoom session

 

Learn an accent like you learn a language — speak!

American Accent Bootcamp is my monthly practice session for professional actors. Participants speak in the General American accent for the duration of the 2 hours & I give coaching notes throughout our group conversation. Think of it as language learning through immersion. Additionally, each Bootcamp touches on the 3 main areas of accent work:

MOUTH: Developing oral posture in the accent
MUSIC: Ear training to master the rhythm, melody, stress & intonation patterns
SOUNDS: Mastering the major sound changes of the General American accent

The Bootcamp is aimed at native speakers of English & numbers are kept low to ensure individual attention.
